Snap Fitness UK begins 40-club expansion with six new sites

Our growth is largely driven from our franchisees – we have some of the best franchisees in the UK, without a doubt
– Isaac Buchanan, CEO, Snap Fitness

Twenty-four-hour gym franchise Snap Fitness UK has announced plans for 34 more clubs in 2018, after opening six new sites in the first week of the year.

The mid-market brand more than doubled its presence last year, reaching 44 locations by Christmas, up from 21 at the start of 2017. The expansion began in 2015 with only five clubs.

Snap Fitness CEO Isaac Buchanan told Health Club Management: “There are no signs of us slowing down in 2018.

“Our growth is largely driven from our franchisees – we have some of the best franchisees in the UK, without a doubt.

“We expect another 34 clubs to open before the end of the year, with all projections marking 2018 as our best year to date.”

Spread across the UK, from St Austell in the south to Aberdeen in the north, the clubs range from 4,000 to 10,000sq ft in size and include instructor-led group fitness and functional training areas.

The franchise’s London headquarters has doubled in size to support the growth, with the addition of an in-house property acquisitions team, marketing manager and learning and development manager.

Snap Fitness was founded in the US in 2003 and has more than 2,000 clubs across 18 countries.
